Island was just named one of the most innovative companies of 2023 by Fast Company. It’s a real honor to be recognized for the breakthrough tech we’re creating and delivering to our customers. A moment we’re incredibly proud of and want to share with the world.

But I was working on a million different things when we found out and I didn’t have time to write a whole blog article about it.

So I didn’t. I had Island GPT Assistant do it for me.

It was my first time using Island GPT Assistant inside my regular workflow to accomplish a task I’d normally do on my own. And I must say – it did a pretty good job.

Here’s the article it wrote for me about how innovative Island is, so I can continue… innovating. Congrats Island!

It's official: Island, The Enterprise Browser, was just named one of the most innovative companies of 2023 by Fast Company, and we couldn't be more proud.

The list recognizes companies that have launched groundbreaking ideas that have the potential to revolutionize their respective industries. Each year, Fast Company editors and writers select the most remarkable businesses across 36 categories, including health, finance, government and artificial intelligence.

We at Island have worked hard to create a browser that helps businesses remain secure while providing their employees with the necessary tools they need to excel in the modern workplace. Now, to see that effort - and our groundbreaking browser - receive national recognition, is beyond validating.

But how did Island gain this recognition? What exactly makes Island innovative?

Is it the fact that it’s so different from all other security and IT solutions on the market?

Or the many capabilities it makes possible for organizations?

Or how excited both security administrators and end-users are about using it?

Or the game-changing impact it’s having on enterprise work?

We’d like to think the answer is all of the above.

But don’t take our word for it. Our customers themselves can tell you everything you need to know about Island’s innovative strength.

“It really is a game changer.” – Frank Gulotti, Head of IT Infrastructure, Bloomreach

“It just checked so many boxes of what we were missing.” – Tim Ringley, VP and CISO, The Bank of Marion

We can do things we didn’t think we could do” - Bob Schuetter, CISO, Ashland

“It’s just such a different approach.” – Brandon Shafer, Director of IT, Mattress Firm

“My mind went wandering in a million different directions.” – Emily Heath, Former CTSO, Docusign. Former CISO, United Airlines

“It’s going to change the industry.” – Gai Hanochi, VP Business Technologies, Fiverr

Island The Enterprise Browser has earned its place as one of the most innovative companies of 2023 based on its commitment to providing secure and productive web browsing experiences to businesses and their employees. We are honored to have received this recognition and will continue to strive to exceed the expectations of our amazing customers.
